Thread: The Ending

  1. #1

    Default The Ending

    I was hoping like hell it was simply a lypoma(sp) but truth is i allready knew,I dont know how but i did. and I allready knew my course of action.
    My old dog has an extreamly aggressive mass cell tumor near his armpit, the vet wont touch it with good reason, being there is no point in doing so.

    Cutting it out with ultra wide margins means cutting out ribs etc, not much quality of life going on afterwards with that action.

    I am happy, my dog is happy, he will live as long as he does it could be weeks , months or years, when the tumor pops and ulcerates, and It will, i dont know when but allready he has no hair over the lump I will PTS my best mate within the hour, sure I could get the vet to remove the ulcer and close the hole up, give a course of antibiotics and he will live for a couple more months maybe, but Quality of my dogs life is most important to me, especially in his end days.

    He eats good food, sleeps soundly, goes down for a swim in the dam every day, barks at wallabies and birds, and is a very contented happy dog.

    I am so sorry. Love him while he is here. You sound like you've been a fabulous partner for him.

    Can I ask a quick question on the circumstances surrounding discovering the lump. What did it look like? What did it feel like? I understand if you don't want to though.
    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.
